Principal's message

We are a 3-18 non-denominational Christian independent school welcoming pupils of all faiths and none. We have a family atmosphere, high expectations of our pupils, and a strong and supportive ethos.

In addition to being committed to excellence in the academic development of our pupils, we also ensure first-rate, individual pastoral care and life-affirming extra-curricular experiences. We encourage pupils to develop their existing strengths and talents and to always do their best while trying something different.

There is a wealth of superb opportunities at Hamilton College, and we want to draw the best from every child. Our holistic, educational experience encourages pupils to become well-rounded citizens, who know they are part of a wider local, national and international community. We teach the person, not just the subject.

When you visit us, you will meet pleasant, polite children and young people who work together in the same building, and who want to do well and to look out for one another. We look forward to giving you the warmest of welcomes.
